Anne of Seven Gables

This might be the first literary malaphor posted.   A friend was discussing books and mentioned this one.  It is a mash up of Anne of Green Gables, a children’s novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, and The House of the Seven Gables, a novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne.  Gables created the garble.   A shout out to Martin Pietrucha for uttering this one and then man enough to send it in.

    Doug’s sitting here reiterating his argument with Martin about this submission. Doug says it’s a conflation of titles and Mart defended, “well Uncle Dave took it”. Doug says you make up your own rules; I’m just getting in the middle for fun. Hi Dave, -Robyn >
